Faith Like Abraham’s…

This morning I was reading… “As it is written: “I have made you a father of many nations.” He is our father in the sight of God, in whom he believed—the God who gives life to the dead and calls into being things that were not. Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead—since he was about a hundred years old—and that Sarah’s womb was also dead. Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, being fully persuaded that God had power to do what he had promised. This is why “it was credited to him as righteousness.” (Romans 4:17-22 NIV)

So, God… What does this wild faith look like? How do we respond to such faith stirring inside?

“THIS IS MY SPIRIT IN YOU. I AM THE AUTHOR OF WILD FAITH. THIS IS MY SPIRIT STIRRING IN YOU. BECAUSE IN THE END I GET ALL GLORY FOR MYSELF. I SEE WHAT YOU DO NOT SEE AND MY WORD CREATES EVERYTHING. MY WORD ALONE HAS THE POWER TO BRING ALL THINGS INTO EXISTENCE. THAT’S WHY YOUR PART IS SIMPLE. JUST BELIEVE. JUST BELIEVE THAT IT IS. I SAID ‘LET THERE BE LIGHT’. AND THE LIGHT WAS. AND LIGHT IS. AND YOU ARE, JUST BECAUSE I SPOKE YOU INTO BEING. AND I SPOKE ALL YOUR PROMISES. AND THEY ARE. JUST BECAUSE YOU DON’T SEE THEM YET, DOES THAT MEAN THEY ARE NOT? AT NIGHT TIME, JUST BECAUSE YOU DON’T SEE THE SUN, DOES IT MEAN THE SUN IS NOT? IT SURELY IS THERE. ON THE OTHER SIDE OF WHERE YOU ARE. WHILE YOU ARE IN THE DARK, THE SUN STILL SHINES BRIGHT. WITH MUCH FORCE. JUST ON THE OTHER SIDE. JUST BELIEVE LONG ENOUGH AND THE SUN RISES IN THE MORNING WHERE YOU ARE. SO IT IS WITH MY PROMISES. THEY ARE! I SPOKE THEM INTO BEING. THEY ARE THERE. YOU JUST WAIT. JUST HOPE. JUST BELIEVE. AND DON’T FEAR.

YOU JUST MAKE ME SMILE. CHILDLIKE FAITH. THAT IS WHAT I PRODUCE IN YOU. THE KIND OF FAITH A LITTLE CHILD HAS WHEN THEY COME TO ASK QUESTIONS. THEY BELIEVE IT ALL. THEY JUST ASK ‘WHY?, WHY?’…. AND THE RESPONSE, THEY BELIEVE IT. JUST PLAINLY BELIEVE IT. THEY DO. BE LIKE THOSE 2 YEAR OLDS. JUST BELIEVE”.
